Many people who are considering an artificial lawn have concerns about their pets. They wonder: Will my dog still be able to use the lawn? Will my dog like the lawn? The answer is that your dog is likely to love the lawn! In fact, our turf is extremely pet-friendly. We will outline some of the ways this is true and we invite you to contact All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873 if you would like a quote.

Pets need exercise both for their physical and mental health. Playing outside is a great option for them to get the exercise they need, and when you choose artificial turf for your lawn, they’ll have a great place to play. What’s more, you do not have to worry about many of the negative aspects of a natural lawn. For example, you can enjoy these benefits:
- They won’t get muddy paws on an artificial lawn
- They won’t eat grass
- They won’t dig
- The grass will be even at all times
- You will not have to look at bare spots
- The dog’s urine will not create dead/yellow spots in the lawn
These are just a few of the reasons that artificial grass lawns are so popular with Fido and friends around the world.
Understanding the Components of a Pet-Friendly Artificial Grass System
We carefully design every pet-friendly system to ensure it is strong enough, sanitary, and beautiful. This system will include a base material. This is essentially the foundation of compacted material. Crushed rock is a common choice. The purpose of this layer is to offer a stable surface for the turf to be installed on, and to help drainage.
As to the layer of artificial grass, we recommend TigerTurf because it is one of the strongest products you will find on the market. The grass layer stays in place no matter if your pet plays hard or not at all. It also will not be stained by your pet’s waste. All you have to do is pick up solid waste and rinse away liquid waste with a hose.
Finally you have the infill layer, which is designed to weight down the turf and ensure that the blades stay tall. We generally recommend Durafill for systems with pets. This is sand coated with acrylic that is anti-microbial so you know odors and bacteria will not be stuck in it. It also takes in less solar energy compared to other infill options, which helps keep your pet at a comfortable temperature.
